While Mitt Romney was famously fond of congratulating people he met while running for president in 2012, often for reasons that were not evident to anyone besides himself, it would appear that the former Massachusetts governor's manners are not entirely impeccable.

Speaking on his radio show on Monday, right-wing media personality Glenn Beck revealed that Mitt Romney has yet to thank Beck for a gift Beck gave him during the 2012 campaign — a first-edition copy of George Washington's celebrated farewell address. And Beck isn't over it.

“I’ve never regretted giving anybody anything more than I regretted my gift to Mitt Romney,” Beck complained. “I’m still hung up on that.”

Beck explained that the gift, which was Beck's personal copy of the speech, was given in order to inspire Romney to greatness. "I was trying to cement in his mind, ‘You have run an honorable race. I don’t agree with you on everything. But please understand the time that we’re in, and if you win, you have to be George Washington,’” Beck said.

"'You have to be a guy who understands the principles,'" he added.

Yet despite the gift's value and Beck's beneficence in giving it, the former Fox News star says he's never received so much as a thank you from Romney or his crew.

"They’re really rare and expensive, and I never even got a thank-you note," Beck lamented. "Never even got a thank-you note. Pisses me off to this day. And the more I find out about Mitt Romney, the more it pisses me off."
